Mary Beth Ferrante is a mom of 2 and advocate for creating inclusive workplaces for parents. She is the Founder & Managing Director of WRK/360, a platform designed to create workplace cultures that care through scalable leadership development programs that promote flexible work, empathetic leadership, and breaking down parental bias. As a former SVP in the finance industry, she always valued growing her career and like so many other career-driven mamas, she was surprised to hit the Maternal Wall. Her own experience propelled her to dive deeper into maternal bias, to influence changes to workplace culture, and to advocate for a national paid leave policy. Her work has been featured in Forbes, Today, CNBC, Working Mother, FairyGodBoss, ScaryMommy, and more.
Tara Ryan is a Certified Professional Coach (CPC) that is fascinated by human potential and confident that every individual has the ability to live into theirs fully, but to do so, must be in working environments where they are fully supported, seen, and celebrated. Tara spent 11 years in the tech sales space where she didn’t always feel this way, which drove her to create her own coaching and consulting business, Infinidei. Tara is also a Certified Fair Play Facilitator working with clients on creating more equity in their relationships to allow space for their professional and personal goals. WRK/360 is thrilled to have Tara as part of our Coaching Team.
